Natural hazards assessment in the community of Ólafsfjördhur, Iceland. A regional-scale risk analysis / Andrew Moran, Clemens Geitner, Maria Wastl, Johann Stötter.

Title: Natural hazards assessment in the community of Ólafsfjördhur, Iceland. A regional-scale risk analysis / Andrew Moran, Clemens Geitner, Maria Wastl, Johann Stötter.
Author(s): Moran, Andrew.
Geitner, Clemens.
Wastl, Maria.
Stötter, Johann.
Date: 2003.
In: Erde, Die. (2003.), Vol. 2 (2003)
Abstract: French and German summaries. Uses regional approach to natural hazards assessment in Iceland. Describes geography and climate of Ólafsfjördhur area on Tröllaskagi peninsula and reviews its record of disasters such as snow avalanches and landslides. Describes risk assessment approach and use of GIS based computer simulation to calculate spatial extent of snow avalanches and rockfalls. Describes avalanche model due to G.Meissl, including determination of avalanche starting zones as input data and component describing avalanche runout distance, originally due to Bakkehoi. Results show considerable potential risk to human settlements, especially from snow avalanches.
